Putting a date on the release of Chibok girls is just speculative - Abba Moro

Abba Moro

The Minister of Interior, Comrade Abba Moro, says consultation is on to end insurgency in the North-East and ensure the release of the Chibok girls.

He ruled out any specific date for the release of the abducted girls but noted that their release was topmost on the card of negotiations and consultation.Moro, who spoke at the weekend to journalists in Makurdi, Benue State capital, said government was working with partners to end the insurgency.

He said, “The true picture in Nigeria as far as insurgency in the North-East is concerned is that the war on Nigeria by the terrorists is still on.

“And, of course, from on the onset of this crisis, government had indicated tackling the insurgency on three fronts: point of engagement, point of consultation and point of containment.

“And so, consultations definitely will continue: And don’t forget that because of the prolonged nature of the insurgency, a lot activities are going on, both at the level of government and the level of the insurgents. So now, the insurgents are divided into various sectors especially with the death of their leader, Shekarau.

He however said  “But for anybody to put a date on the release of the Chibok girls, that person is just being speculative, but we will certainly get there soon”.
